Top 5 Biggest Mistakes Amature Writers Make

Video from independent editor Ellen Brock:

1.) Unclear point of view & “head-hopping” – This mistake can scare off agents/editors/publishers

2.) Too much voice (overly poetic or descriptive)

3.) Not enough voice (robotic writing and not enough description)

4.) Too much telling

5.) Not enough conflict and/or no clear goal for protag
